5 Reasons Smog is Good for China

Seriously, this was a recent article in China.  After being there 3 times and trying to breath in that smog, I had to laugh.  Nothing like seeing the glass half full!  But, here you go:

There are five benefits of China’s widespread air pollution, Lei writes:
1. Smog unites people against a common enemy.
2. It promotes equality, because it harms the lungs of both the rich and the poor.
3. Smog has opened people’s eyes to the price China has to pay for becoming the “world’s factory.”
4. It’s made people funnier because they have to use sarcasm and jokes to cope with it.
5. Learning about smog has increased people’s knowledge of meteorology, history, geography, and physics and even strengthened everyone’s use of the English language.

  1. I guess that is one way of looking at it! That reminds me next week to schedule and appointment with my doctor for an extra inhaler as I have mild asthma. I certainly do not want to see the effects of extra smog on my lungs.
